Sustainability 24/7
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The project is aimed at developing students’ perspective and their reflection on Learning in a Global World. Students within the 16-19 age range are to reach an international level and experience by way of project work and intercultural communication, exchanges and mobilities. We intend to address the topic of sustainability from diverse and varied angles, and how it affects the students' daily lives now and in the future. This will be achieved through the joint efforts of students and their teachers on five overall themes, related to sustainability. The five themes will start out with activities at the home school leading up to mobilities and a workshop. All workshops will consist of students’ presentations and science lab work in cooperation with external local partners, e.g. universities, museums, industry and the media. The five partner countries will take responsibility for one workshops each. The 5 themes will be 'Renewable forms of energy' (IS), 'Advertising-communication campaigns' (DE), 'Biotechnology' (DK), 'Waste and recycling (AT) and 'Saving energy' (FR). We intend to involve a wide range of subjects, from technology and biotechnology, biology and chemistry to history, social studies and to cover many angles of the theme. The crossovers between the five schools study lines will enhance the student’s motivation and involvement in their schools curriculums. The project will focus on the students working together on research, use of data logging, practical work, lab work, Virtual Learning Environments, visits, field trips and face-to-face contact. Each theme will result in products and sharing knowledge through ICT. The project will use the pedagogical approach of portfolio for self-evaluation and a virtual learning environment, web site and blogs. Teachers will plan jointly and try out teaching approaches used by the partner institution. We will focus on using new digital methods of learning, e.g. virtual labs, data logging, on-line data sharing and communication. All institutions have an overall aim to improve learning processes and achievements in science related subjects, such as technology, chemistry and biotechnology. The National Ministries emphasise the need for better results in science related subjects and the focus on these. The schools have agreed upon the topic of sustainability, because it is something that has public and national attention in all European countries, because the European Union has committed themselves to very ambitious climate and energy targets for 2020. These targets, known as the "20-20-20" targets, set three key objectives for 2020: •A 20% reduction in EU greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels; •Raising the share of EU energy consumption produced from renewable resources to 20%; •A 20% improvement in the EU's energy efficiency. The general aim of the project is to raise awareness about the importance of adopting sustainable habits and behaviors. We aim at making our students feel more concerned about these issues, and make them more eco-responsible citizens. Hereby we hope that the students realize that some problems concerning sustainability can be dealt with on a local and even personal level. Hence developing a sense of how they can convince others to act in a sustainable way. We have also decided to address the topic of “sustainable living” by involving local primary schools in our project. The collaboration with these primary schools will aim to raise awareness in younger age groups about the issues raised as part of our project, but also to ensure an effective dissemination of the results and outcomes of our activities and production. The primary schools will take an active part in the project, both prior to and during the workshops. They will be asked to join some of the workshops’ activities, enabling both age groups to learn from one another. The project will also give us the opportunity to discover social projects for young people on the upcycling of waste, and to visit institutions for handicapped people who work on the dismantling of PCs as fine motricity activities.
